So with all these oil companies drilling and pumping out the black gold and exporting it out of the country you mean to tell me the NFF can't find s sponsors?
most national teams pay their national team via sponsors and the major nations don't even rely on government handouts,it's as if the NFF thought they could continue to rely on government funding then pay players from petty cash biscuit tin in the hotel lobby.
We of course have ready sponsors but the ready sponsors don't have a competent FA to deal with. NFF's sponsorship history is horrible. They enagage and then cancel - the focus is the lump sum they get and then they violate the contract, resell sponsorhsip when one is still in flight. NFF ONLY knows how to consume not how to generate ANYTHING. Worst of all, beyond consumption, they're good at sucking life out of any revenue generating program put in their care - killing any goose that can lay an egg and eating all the eggs too.
NFF have ample sponsors and indeed raise billions of naira through players' transfers, national teams sponsorship, match sales and CAF, FIFA competition remunerations. The federal government also doles out budgeted annual stipends to them. The question is: where does all these monies end up? The answer is: they end up in the deep pockets of the NFA chairman and his executives. Amos Adamu became one of the richest men in Nigeria when he was made the sole administrator of the NFA now NFF. Another very rich Nigerian is col Abdul Muminu Aminu, whose NFA administration also hosted Nigeria '99 world youth championship, a lavish affair jived up by the late head of state, General Sanni Abacha who is on record second to none other than, (only), oga patapata of the ole barawo, General Olusegun Obasanjo in the annals of Nigeria's supreme corruption kingpins. Corruption is the bane of the NFF same goes for all Nigerian institutions.
